Our favorite is the Foliage Fleur Shrug, from the cover of book #247. I wasn't too sure about this sweater from the picture. But when I tried it on I was sold. It is comfortable, cozy, lightweight, and FUN! We all agree, it's an awesome sweater. And it's here for you to see! Andra had just returned from Stitches and she said that jacket was the hit of the show. People were snapping it up right and left.
Another favorite is Andra's own pattern - the Cabin Lap Throw, which uses 5 different Berroco yarns and is a simple wave stitch. I put together 5 really pretty color combinations for the website and can't wait to knit one up for the shop. I think were going to do the blue colorway.
So next Saturday, November 18th, come in, get inspired and $AVE on Berroco yarns! If you're in a rut, Andra will get you moving on your holiday knitting. Bring needles if you want to swatch some yarns, or we'll supply them if you forget.
So Barb, Michele and I took home our Louet sock kits, and dyed our sock yarn this weekend. It was so fun to come in on Monday morning and see how each other's yarns came out. It is so much fun and it is so EASY. What a great project!Here are the steps. Soak yarn in Meadows Wool Wash.
Prepare dyeing surface with plastic wrap.
Lay yarn on surface, side by side.Have fun with your colors (all three of them).
Wrap each skein in plastic wrap.
Put all three skeins inside of two Ziploc storage bags.
Microwave for 4 minutes once, and then turn over, and another 4 minutes.
Take out. HOT! Squeeze out excess liquid.
Hang to dry.
When dry, wash again in wool wash. Rinse, rinse, rinse. Dry. ENJOY!
